concerned,

It seems I should have been more specific for you, sorry.

The posts I thought you might find illuminating are not the posts about Montel per se ("bad press is bad press") but rather the posts about a person being self-serving.

Don't worry about it, concerned.

Edit: I misread it. Thanks concerned.

ARE YOU SAYING I DON'T TAKE CARE OF MY MOTHER?

SHE LIVES IN A NURSING HOME.

I, LIKE MANY OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS OF PEOPLE IN NURSING HOMES, VISIT MY MOTHER EVERYDAY TO FEED HER, GO SHOPPING FOR HER, BRUSH HER TEETH, CLEAN HER ROOM, HELP HER REPOSITION IN HER WHEELCHAIR, ETC. ETC. ETC. ETC. ETC. ETC....

THIS IS THE MOST OFFENSIVE THING ANY OF YOU HAVE SAID TO ME IN THE PAST FEW DAYS.

JUST PLAIN RUDE.

I still can't get over your stupid baseless accusation. hopefully this will make my mother think differently about this board though.

No thanks to you!

How the hell did you misread something you quoted and highlighted? Why are all of you so dependent on the aristotelian either/or proposition? EITHER i take care of my mother OR she lives in a nursing home is a false dichotomy. but i guess logic isn't your forte?

concerned,

Here's a new post for you (instead of just an edit)...

I sincerely apologize for offending you. I really wanted to know, though -- my wording just didn't come out right. Sometimes I misread, misspeak, and mistype (an example of which is in my edit: misread s/b mistyped), and I should have put more thought into my question.

Actually, I thought you two might be living in the same situation -- an assisted living arrangement.

I do hope you find what you're looking for. TIMS' members have helped and more will probably come along.

concerned,

I see we cross-posted.

And if I wasn't sincere, I would not have welcomed you or pointed you to a thread in which Dr. Sclafani talks about people being self-serving.

Honestly.

if you weren't sincere in calling me a liar? why don't you put back the comments you edited out?

concerned,

I understand I should have not edited out my original second question to you... and that's something I won't ever do again!

I noted (through quotes) how you said you take care of your mother and also that she lived in a nursing home. I then asked (maybe someone still has the whole post?) you to tell me how you accomplished that (or words to that effect).

And that's all I can think of to help make you feel better.

Hopefully, your thread can now continue.

I want to know if there's something to this and not just hope mongering. If there's a good reason to throw my family in debt forever. if i could just give her sugar pills it'd be a whole lot cheaper.


Tough call. Can you get her tested someplace locally?

concerned, i have ppms. i am getting pretty bad. in my case no hope is the worst. i'm not worried about someone makeing a few bucks off of something that is helping a lot of people whether i'm one of them or not. who i am mad at, frustrated with, pissed off at you name it are the people that are preventing me or your mom from getting tested and treated if we choose to and our med. ins. pay for it. if a person has a blocked artery or vein anywhere else in their body they can get it fixed if they want. this is not a new procedure it just happens it may help ms. your mom and i or anybody else should not have to borrow money or pay out of pocket or trapse all over the country to get help like that's so easy when you have ms. i hope for everybody's sake this changes soon. but anyway, i'd be a gonner without hope-i just try to put it into perspective.

A quote

Postby BooBear » Mon May 24, 2010 4:36 am

For Concerned and anyone else that are in the position of balancing hope with finances. I have this quote up in my office and read it daily:

"Life is constantly providing us with new funds, new resources, even when we are reduced to immobility. In life's ledger, there is no such thing as frozen assets." - Henry Miller

I have no money, no resources, no hopes. I am the happiest man alive.
-Henry Miller

This is a bit more up my alley!

Is the absurd man, seeing himself in his own nakedness for the very first time, not even the slightest bit aroused?

Was this first post question ever answered? if so does that mean anything? Is all that has followed what they call collateral consequence?
